Books are part of self-care too. They allow us to expand our horizons, enter a new world, and relax.

Here are hashtag groups in Preview I recommend:

  • Self-Care
  • Self-Love
  • Self-Growth (especially if the book is teaching you something)
  • Self-Development (same as above, and for self-development books too)
